2019 Fantasy Outlook
McKissic made some noise in 2017 with 453 scrimmage yards and three TDs on 80 touches, but he was a non-factor a year ago following the addition of first-round pick Rashaad Penny to the backfield alongside starter Chris Carson. McKissic could get on the field more this season with the departure of Mike Davis in free agency, not to mention C.J. Prosise's next inevitable injury. The best-case scenario for McKissic is a role on passing downs, while the worst-case scenario is losing his roster spot to 2019 sixth-round pick Travis Homer. Read Past Outlooks

Suits up in preseason win

August 24, 2019
McKissic (undisclosed) rushed six times for 20 yards and brought in all three targets for 11 yards in the Seahawks' 23-15 preseason win over the Chargers on Saturday.
McKissic was able to take the field and log a hefty (by preseason standards) nine touches, and he gave a solid accounting of himself in his ongoing battle with C.J. Prosise for the No. 3 running back job. The two backs offer a similar skill set, and their job battle should culminate inThursday's preseason finale against the Raiders.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
After barely playing as a rookie in 2016, McKissic made his way onto the game-day roster in Week 4 and never looked back, finishing the year as the Seahawks' main receiving option out of the backfield. At 5-10, 195, the converted college wideout lacks the size to be an every-down running back in the NFL, but he's a mismatch against linebackers given his sharp routes and elusiveness, and he showed he can contribute on the ground when he took his first carry of the season 30 yards for a score. McKissic was trying to beat out C.J. Prosise for a role on passing downs, but a Jones fracture suffered in late August ended McKissic's bid.
